Clara is in her second year at St. Mary’s Limavady, and sings with the school choir. She was one of six Year 8 pupils to be chosen for last year’s Christmas production of “Blame it on the Boogie”.
During the past year Clara was cast for the ensemble of the Millennium Forum’s Youth Production of “Cats” and has more recently become a member of “LMS” and performed in their production of “Guys and Dolls”. Clara loves to be on stage and is hoping that she will perform again with LMS in their Production of “Calamity Jane” in April 2020. You will also see Clara in the junior cast of the Millennium Forum’s Christmas Pantomimes.
Clara is also a member of the Long Tower Folk Group, and has been since birth 😉 and is now studying grades in Clarinet and Piano. She has previously performed in the Danny Boy Jazz and Blues Festival, and in the “Art Tent” at the Stendhal Festival in Limavady. And just to top it off, Clara is also a member of the Rainbow School of Dance where she studies grade in tap, acro and modern dance !
Clara’s love for music, stage, dance, drama and singing is the making of one happy teenager 🙂

Jamie is 17 years old, and music plays a huge part of his life. During his time at Drumachose Primary School, he was cast in the lead roles of their productions of “My Fair Lady”, and “The Sound of Music”. He also won their talent competition “Drumachose Has Got Talent”.
Jamie has just completed studying his first year of A levels at Limavady Grammar School, where he has performed in many of their school productions, Spring and Christmas Concerts, but most recently as Mr. Crocker in their Christmas production of “Back to the 80’s”. Where his rendition of “Man in the Mirror” was amazing.
Jamie was also cast to play the role of “Skimbleshanks” in the Millennium Forum Youth Theatre’s production of “Cats” in the summer of 2018, and in July this year you will see him again on stage in the Production of “Legally Blonde” where he has been cast as one of the “Harvard Boys”.
For the past few years Jamie has become a member of the long running “LMS” where he has performed in their last two productions in the Millennium Forum and is hoping to join the cast of “Calamity Jane” for their show in April 2020.
Jamie is also a very talented piano player, which has led to several performances in the Danny Boy Jazz and Blues Festival, The Foyle Maritime Festival, and also the Stendhal Festival.
So its safe to say “Jamie’s Got Talent”… BA DUM TSSSH 🙂
“45” are Jack, James, Ben and Malachy, Year 10 and 11 pupils at Limavady Grammar School.
The boys formed their band as a result of their shared love of groups such as Guns n Roses and The Foo Fighters.
They are indebted to one of their teachers, Mr Patrick Park, who was instrumental in introducing them to each other and has mentored and encouraged their development from day one.
“The Era” are present & past pupils from St Mary’s School Limavady, who got together about a year & half ago.
The band members are
- Ronan Kelly (vocals /rhythm guitar)
- Eoin McGuinness (lead guitar)
- Matthew O’Kane (bass)
- Joshua Peoples (drums)
Joining the boys on guest vocals for a few numbers is Ariana O’Kane.
The band perform their own brand of ‘alternative rock’, performing original material as well as covers, and have a strong musical background from their time in St Mary’s.
Sorry – no full band photo – but we’ll fix that on Sunday… 😉
